How your support helps

CNIB is Canada’s number-one provider of crucial vision loss services. Your support will help us empower people who are blind or partially sighted, giving them the confidence and skills to lead independent lives.

Here are just a few of the services your gift will help to deliver:

Emotional support groups – helping people work through feelings of grief or isolation after sight loss, and connect with others who care and understand

One-on-one community support – matching our clients with trained volunteers who provide friendship and assistance in the home

Access to literacy - many people don’t realize that we’re one of the largest producers of braille and audio reading materials in Canada, helping people experience the joys of reading after blindness

Computer training – enabling people to access information, reconnect with loved ones, build their job skills and do everyday tasks like paying bills online.

These are only some of the critical services CNIB offers to Canadians who are blind or partially sighted – at no cost to them – thanks to gifts from people like you.

Who we are

CNIB is a registered charity, passionately providing community-based support, knowledge and a national voice to ensure Canadians who are blind or partially sighted have the confidence, skills and opportunities to fully participate in life.
